Dr Catriona Anderson was awarded her first degree in “Applied Biology” concentrating on microbiology from Liverpool University and went on to study Medicine at Leicester University Medical School. She gained experience in a variety of hospital posts, including acute general medicine, gastroenterology, elderly medicine, urology, general surgery, neurology, ITU, A&E and psychiatry before training to become a GP. She has further training in female sexual and reproductive healthcare.
She works as an NHS General Practitioner as well as setting up and running the private Focus Medical Clinic located at the North Staffordshire Nuffield Hospital. She has a particular interest in some of the more challenging cases of long-standing microbial infections, including urinary tract infections (UTIs). Motivated by her interest in this area, she travelled to Russia and the United States; where she observed how therapies used in recurrent infection have successfully helped a wide range of patients.
